And just what did you VW guys do when it was 95F with same humidity out there? Open the windows?  ;)

Cadillac Climate Control, is a tad more complicated than pulling a lever on the tranny tunnel for heat.

The upper crust wants to be sure their fine Italian suits doesn't wrinkle prior to their $1000/plate luncheon.  ;D

There is nothing better than a functioning Climate Control and nothing more exasperating than one that has gone psychotic.   8)

I was in Northern California, in the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains.

Humidity was something in the laundry room, not a weather condition . . .


And I permanently solved it by settling in Las Vegas.   I'll take 115F here over 85 in Iowa any day.

And, no, I don't own VWs here.  not just the lack of real AC, but that the very idea of being in one of those around the other drivers here terrifies me.  We have bad drivers from around the country, and the size of the '93 Fleetwood I just picked up clearly made a difference three times as I crossed town tonight for my CLC regional meeting . . .
